I've been told by a few readers that they weren't too thrilled by my choice of character kill in the final book of the series, The Beasts Unveiled. The reason for this is that the unfortunate character was never intended to be the star. Once you're over the initial shock, think back and you will find that the story actually began and ended with the intended main character. They were always there in the background and given very important purposes throughout the story. The very reason for Deacon's hatred and revenge filled quest was because of that character.
I also know some readers felt cheated out of a love story but again, those characters were never meant to be together in the first place.
So for those of you who felt the same, I apologize but it was always meant to go that way, and for the new readers, pay close attention, there is a method to my madness :)

As a reader, I'm always on the look out for something new, fresh and unique. Something that I can come to grips with. A story that is emotional yet action packed, with a plot that is filled with twists to keep me guessing. I want cliffhangers, love triangles, hot guys and gals who are both fearsome yet vulnerable. I want to weep at their misery and pain then burst with pride when their strength finally shines through. I need characters that are evil to the core so that I can cheer at their downfall, characters that hold an air of mystery, leaving me wondering which way the scales will tip.
As an author, I've tried to include all these traits in my work. If like me, these things truly appeal to you, then check out the Twisted Bloodlines series. Five books that take you on a journey through heartache and pain, villains and good-guys (though some are adoringly a bit of both) a gritty dark story and good old fashioned romance. Be prepared to be drawn into some tough times with characters you'll love, or love to hate :)

The Beasts Unveiled
Under attack from all angles, Sabrina’s mission is simple: retrieve the child and stop Deacon’s rise to power. But in their world, nothing is ever that easy. Deacon has reined in every available source of power to ensure his success in the war against the panthers; all except one. Amelia, born to Peter and Beth, is said to hold the power of a long forgotten bloodline, and Deacon will stop at nothing to get her. Sabrina has been steadily turning friends into enemies with her opinionated views and is tired of living life on the sidelines. Deciding it’s time to leave behind this chapter of her life, she uncovers a devastating betrayal that sends her straight into the lion’s den. Soon, the knife twists even deeper revealing that Deacon is not the only master of deceit. A puppeteer has been pulling their strings from the beginning, creating a destiny that was never intended and replacing it with another, leaving their souls forever incomplete. Fully aware that their lives have been tampered with, accusations fly and loyalties divide making them vulnerable against the enemy. Things spiral out of control and one unavoidable situation leaves blame and guilt weighing heavily on Sabrina’s mind. Despite being shunned by the people she called family, she is determined to help them win against Deacon. In a moment of stupidity that could have ended her life, the future is revealed in two paths for her. Will she choose the right path and go the distance, or will she perish under her uncertainty, leaving Deacon as the successor?
